Updating a previous report, Taj Gibson's left ankle surgery was done in order to fix "badly damaged ligaments and clean out bone spurs." K.C. Johnson on Twitter
The Scoop: The prognosis after the surgery is that nothing is chronic, and he the ankle that's given him problems in the past should be good as new after his four month rehabilitation. This is certainly a positive report as he's dealt with issues in his left ankle for two years now, and he was forced to miss 17 games during the 2014-15 season after spraining that ankle three times. Gibson compiled averages of 10.3 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.2 blocks during the regular-season, but he'll be fighting for minutes with the likes of Pau Gasol and Nikola Mirotic next year, so it could be difficult for him to offer value to teams in standard leagues next season if he remains in Chicago.
